Sideways Farm & Brewery
I’d call it “farmhouse chic”; very pretty - but not overtly pretentious. Bonus; there’s no loud music playing so you can talk to the other people at the bar, yourself, the imaginary voices inside of your head, or those strange ghosts always eating sandwiches that won’t stop haunting you.
So - kind of a unique concept; Sideways offers not only beer by the glass, and bottles for sale to take home - all the beer is served from bottles to make sure it’s extra fresh; and brewed mainly from ingredients that grow on the farm, as well as local honey.
They also offer beer tastings, which is similar to a wine tasting - but with beer. They whole thing with the bottles and personal touch makes the experience feel “old fashioney” made modern - I loved, loved, loved it.
Actually, (truth be told) - I devoured the *very* tasty Spinach Empanadas in like two ghastly bites, and decided to slowly savor the fries after I realized I had globs of spinach running down my face and most likely looked like an overgrown American Pygmy Shrew.
So; next time I’ll just have to order more food so I have extra scraps to share.
Well anyway - I did the “Sideways Side” tasting, which includes more fruity type and unique brews such as “Smoked Sage”, “Farmhouse Berries”, and “”Molasses Cookie Porter” to name a few.
Every different type of beer they have on the menu has an interesting story behind it. Not only did I learn so much information about the farm itself, I also gained a wealth of knowledge about their unique and progressive (yet traditional) brewing process.
Some fun facts that you’ll learn in the tasting is the story behind the Molasses Porter that is made from an age old family recipe, how they’re able to get an authentic sage taste in their “Smoked Sage” brew, and the story behind their beer brewed with local Kombucha.
Word is; they're open Tuesday-Saturday afternoons - with extended hours on the weekends.
